Cheese Trier

Getting To The Core Of Things – Josef Part III

In late July, early August I set about making a cheese in honour of my late Grandfather Josef, which was documented in “Part I – In An Alpine State Of Mind” and in “Part II – It will All Come Out In The Wash“, it is now 5 months later and now it was time to check on its progress.  Before now I have had to cut the cheese open, and then package it up into wedges to continue ageing if needed, but thanks to my wife I have a new tool in my cheese making kit.

My new cheese Trier and sampling knife my wonderful wife got me for Christmas.

With this new tool it was time to sample my little Appenzeller style cheese, or Josef as I have named it.
